Despite what most say, Mr. Tram is actually one of the most knowledgeable and passionate teachers at Riverdale. He makes you work really hard and tries to get the best out of each and every one of his students. Although he is sometimes intimidating (especially when you try to ask him a question), he puts in a lot of work to ensure that his students succeed.

Overall he is a good teacher, but if you missed a lesson(s) even if it was for medical reasons he makes very hard to catch up (hard to find him out of class) and worst of all he allows his mood to effect his class (I understand that everyone gets into a bad mood but as a teacher/professional you should not allow it to affect you work), for an example, one time he was in a bad mood from his last class, and my class had a work period that time and he wouldn't let us come up to ask him a question.

He's knowledgeable but he doesn't teach you the information you need to know AT ALL. For tests, he'll give you a review that doesn't have anything to do with the tests. In addition, he acts like he's wayyy younger than he actually is. STOP!!! I literally want to drop science...

He's smart, competitive and tries his best to teach. His faults show but teachers are still human too. I can understand why some students dislike him, because there are moments where I've disliked him too. However his courses are still doable if you do the work, and don't fall behind (while managing other courses too). He can be scary, just don't get on his bad side, cause it seems like you'll stay there for the rest of the year. Also if he doesn't like you, he'll openly show it. Good person!

Can be intimidating at times but overall a good teacher, as long as you do your homework and pay attention in class.

A lot of people don't like Mr. Tram because he's not very friendly or nice, but I think he's a pretty good teacher. He is very clear and concise, he gets his point across and he uses real-life examples to explain theories. Also, the diagrams he draws make sense and I think he's better than other science teachers. However, he can be really intimidating at times and he always glares at people so it's kind of scary when you want to ask him a question. He's pretty helpful, but like I said he's very intimidating

he's pretty childish.. but he tries to connect with students, which is more than i can say for other teachers. although, he loses his temper when anyone doesn't do homework, and i end up doing his homework before anything else, even if its not due for a while. i was afraid to sleep in his class though, LOL. he marks easy if you do the work right. but thanks to him and mrs. likins, i'm so happy i don't have to take science anymore.

He makes things VERY clear. I learned a lot in his class and did my homework everyday lol. (He scared most of his students into doing their homework.) Nonetheless, I would have never gotten my Bio mark if it wasn't for him. He was very helpful but just a little moody.

Tries too hard to be like the students. You're here to teach, not to be like one of us. But all in all, he knows his material and can be helpful at times.
